Access to education for out-of-school children and youth in Zimbabwe

By Bukeka Mkhosi | July 06th, 2011

The goal of the project is to improve access to alternative education for children and youth who are out of the formal education system.

The aim of the project is to address the urgent need to provide children and youth with an opportunity to access alternative education, World Education Incorporated’s (WEI) Children First Project (CF) will implement a project to give out of school children and youth extra educational support to rejoin the formal education system and to provide them with alternative life skills when this is not possible.

OSISA will provide a grant to World Education-Zimbabwe - which began in 2008 with the implementation of the five-year Children First Project. World Education-Zimbabwe aims to increase care and support for orphans and vulnerable children and youth.

The project will run from August 2011-July 2012 and aims to:

• To integrate the program into the national non formal system by strengthening linkages between the out of school sites and MOESAC Department of Non formal Education and other stakeholders by July 2012,
• To enhance the basic functional literacy and numeracy levels of 900 out-of-school children and youth by July 2012, and,
• To raise awareness about the out of school program and advocate with relevant stakeholders to address the challenges faced by out of school children and youth.
